The Graphics Fairy sent out pics of a lobster today and it reminded me of Little Man when he was about 3 years old. He had his back to us as he was digging through a kitchen drawer and when he turned around he held up his hands like a lobster and exclaimed, “Look I’m a lamster!”
“Lamster” was his hybrid word for lobster–lobster and hamster. He likes Zhu Zhu pets and Kung Zhu and all those hamster-like toys. He loves animals, in general. He also customizes words, a lot. Remember the “venting” machine? That was his word. The funniest part of this was he had taken rubber bands and put them around his fingers and held himself very much like a reluctant lobster coming out of a tank (before going for its final scalding swim).
